Development of DCMI Application Profile Model and Wiki tools for Application Profiles

Monday, August 06, 2007

DCMI has commissioned two work items that are related to the development of Application Profiles. The first is a specification of a DCMI Description Set Profile as part of a more formal DCMI Application Profile Model, drafted by Mikael Nilsson. Following from that work, Fredrik Enoksson is designing a Wiki format for Dublin Core Application Profiles which both renders the profile readably in HTML and is structured in such a way that it can be automatically converted by a script into an XML format. The work also includes designing and building a tool for transforming an Application Profile in the Wiki format into an XML representation of the profile. Results of this work are foreseen to be demonstrated at a plenary Architecture session at DC-2007 on Tuesday 28 August 2007.
